LD,

Age has nothing to do with it. Personality, flexibility and a sincere passion about customer service are among the ageless qualities that many airlines look for in candidates. A professional appearance and demeanor are crucial, though.

This is an excellent time to start a career as a flight attendant. That being said, you must also be persistent. It is not unusual to have to apply to several companies before you find the right one. So go for it my friend!

Good Luck!

Great advice--and very true!

I started my career as a FA at 50 and never regret it!

My advice to you is to interview with as many airlines as you can (within reason.) The experience you gain is invaluable to you getting your dream job!

Good luck!!

Im the same age and thought the same, thinking that the airlines want that fresh young look. But then I though about it and Im sure they want a mix of young, middle age(you and I LOL)and older. So lets go for it and have fun at it. Be yourself and stress your customer service, I believe THATS what they are looking for over all. Good luck to you!!!!!

You have made my day. I'm 53 and feel 33. I was hoping someone would ask this question. Yes, it has occurred to me that they would only want the younger ones. I just need a career change and I would basically be doing the same work just up in the skies. I have been working social services for years.
Thanks again,

I would love to be an FA. Been working social services for years, I'm 53 and don't feel my age, whatever that means. I know that when I was in my 20's, 50 to me was old. I wasn't sure how HR was set up in the airlines. Ah, heck. I figured I'd give it a try. Been thinking for a while what type of work would be equivalent to social services without the 9-5. Then, it occurred to me. I'd make a great flight attendant!!!!
